We will have the trailer in the dirt lot across the highway at Surfer's. Please use extreme caution crossing the highway as this will be at the peak of commute time!

We're considering running a free surf tomorrow morning to kick off the 4th of July. If there is enough of you that want to surf, I'll meet you at Dunes around 8:00am. Conditions may be decent with light variable winds and a little south swell.

Please email me directly at marty.vci@gmail.com to confirm if you are planning on surfing. I'll only run it if I have enough of you are around to surf. We will not have the trailer, so be sure to bring your own board or grab one from the trailer (at Cunha) before heading to the beach.

Also, all surfers are invited to march in the 4th of July Parade on Main Street tomorrow with the Boys and Girls Club. If you attend, be sure to wear a surf club tee-shirt, sweat shirt or hat. Also, bring your skateboard, bike or carry your surfboard. If your riding a skateboard or bike, be sure to wear a helmet!!

The line up for the parade will start at 10:30 to 11:00am in front of Cunha. Look for Mr. Ferdinand as he will be representing the surf club with his sweet classic Woody Wagon. I may not be able to be there.. but will be available by phone should any of you have questions.

Club Surfers,

It looks likes the conditions will be good for Sunday Morning at Dunes Beach at 8am. I won't be able to bring the trailer so if you need a wavestorm you'll have to stop at Cunha and grab one from the trailer on the way to the beach.

Conditions should be suitable for B surfers and as always A surfers are welcome. C surfers are welcome so long as they have a parent present on the beach.

Please check your email ahead of time to make sure we haven't moved or canceled. If there is no update... it means practice is on!
